Hello Gerald,

The upload speed factors would be a combination of your internet connection and other concurrent incoming connections to the public Main server. Using Filezilla is a good choice. Successful transfer can be confirmed and should there be an interruption the transfer can be resumed.

I cannot comment specifically on exact transfer speeds for cloud data, but this is something you could check in with Amazon about. However, on your own instance/storage bucket, you of course would not be sharing any dedicated bandwidth they specify with other end-users.

Take care,

Galaxy team

I am uploading a file to the Main Galaxy and ... the speed as shown by FileZilla is 180KB/sec. I know from other work that my internet connection has 2MB/sec and usually does not go lower than 1 MB/sec. Is that normal, or is there a problem, and where is it, my system or Main? What should the speed be?
Also, does anybody have experience with uploading to a Galaxy cloud instance? What's the speed there?
;-) does Main accept mailed-in hard drives?  ;-)
